mains hall singleton history

This is a large parish of partnersuche online frauen kostenlos 4,063 acres, about 2½ miles from east to west and 3½ miles from north to south, divided by a valley running at about the 200-ft. level between much higher ground. In this valley lie the settlements of West Dean, Singleton, Charlton, and East Dean, linked by road. The considerable village of Singleton lies at the point where another valley, carrying the road (and railway) to Midhurst, comes in from the north. One mile south of the village is Rook's, or St. Roche's, Hill with the Trundle, a Neolithic and Early Iron Age camp, on the edge of the parish, where a height of 677 ft. is reached. About the same distance to the north-east, on Heyshott Down, a height of 760 ft. is attained, and all this northern third of the parish is heavily wooded, constituting the Forests of Singleton and Charlton. The hamlet of Charlton, ½ mile east of Singleton, is famous in sporting annals for its Hunt; and on the downland to the south of it is the even more famous Goodwood Racecourse.

An architectural relic of the Charlton Hunt is Fox Hall, the lodge built by the Duke of Richmond in 1730. Externally the chief feature is the chimneystack on the north side with a moulded cornice, above which the square shaft is flanked by consoles; inside, the first-floor bedroom retains its panelling and fine fireplace. Otherwise the houses here and in Singleton village are unpretentious buildings, mainly of the 17th century, with typical chimney-stacks and, in some instances, thatched roofs. One tiny cottage, north of the church and east of the main road, with flint-faced mud walls and thatched roof, may be medieval, as there are freestone dressings to one jamb of the doorway and to one angle.


In the time of Edward the Confessor the manor of SINGLETON, which then included East and West Dean, was held by Earl Godwin; it was then assessed at 97½ hides and was worth £89. In 1086 it was one of the manors retained in his own hands by Earl Roger, and its assessment had been frauen kennenlernen die zocken reduced by 47 hides. The clerks of the church (see below) held 3¼ hides, a certain William 1 hide, Geoffrey 2 hides, Pagen 1 hide, and a monk of St. Evroul 1 hide. There were 2 mills, and 9 haws in Chichester were attached to the manor. The value of the earl's estate was estimated at £93, but frauen kennenlernen die zocken he was raising £120 from it; the estates of the 'knights' were worth £14, and that of the church £8.

Singleton descended with the honor of Arundel and in 1566 was among the manors conveyed by Henry, Earl of Arundel, to his daughter Jane and her husband John, Lord Lumley, who died seised of it in 1610. It continued in his family until 1730, when the Earl of Scarborough sold it to the Duke of Richmond, with whose descendants it has remained.


CHARLTON, also, was part of the honor of Arundel. Lands there were assigned in dower to Isabel de Mortimer, widow of John, Earl of Arundel, in 1272, and it continues to figure in the estates of the earls, the free chace there being mentioned in 1344. The manor was conveyed to Lord Lumley in 1566 with that of Singleton and descended with it to the Dukes of Richmond.

There seems to have been a subinfendation of part of the manor of Charlton, as in 1428 William Courte was holding a ¼ knight's fee, formerly held by Walter de Charleton, here. John Court 'of Charlton' died in 1553, and in 1640 John Court and Katherine his wife sold the manor of Charlton and its lands to Sir William Forde and Sir Edward Banister. They were presumably acting for Richard, Viscount Lumley, as he leased the manor with Singleton to Mr. Lewknor in 1646, and in his will of 1662 says that he bought the manor from John Court and his wife. It was sold with Singleton in 1730 to the Duke of Richmond.


The church of ST. JOHN EVANGELIST stands south of the village; it is built of flint rubble, part plastered, with freestone dressings and some modern brick patching, and is roofed with tile. It consists of chancel with south organ chamber, nave, aisles with north porch and south vestry, and western tower. The tower and probably the upper part of the nave walls are of preConquest date; the chancel was reconstructed and a south aisle added in the 13th century; this aisle was reconstructed and a north aisle and porch were added in the 15th; the organ chamber and vestry are modern.


The chancel has at each eastern corner a diagonal buttress in two stages with sloping offsets; these and the east window, of three cinquefoil-headed lights with Perpendicular tracery, are insertions of the 15th century in walls of the 13th. Close to the east end of the south wall on the outside are the remains of a 13th-century lancet window, formerly farther west, but refixed here when the organ chamber was added; this was originally a low side window. On each side of the chancel is a window of three cinquefoil-headed lights, without tracery, under a four-centred arch, of the 16th century. A modern arch of two orders, the inner resting on shafts attached to square responds, opens into the organ chamber on the south side. The chancel arch is of two orders with hollow chamfers resting on semicircular responds with moulded caps and bases; the profile of the former suggests a late copy, probably 15th-century, of work of the 13th. In the south wall is a piscina with pointed arched head, and in the north a small squareheaded aumbry, both probably 15th-century. The roof is ancient, having a moulded tie-beam, moulded wallplates, and plain trussed rafters. Against the north wall is a table tomb with flat canopy, panelled soffit, and cresting of four-leaved flowers; against the south is another table tomb without canopy; both have panelled fronts and the casements of lost brasses in their reredoses, and both are of the 15th or 16th century.

The modern organ chamber has a diagonal buttress of two stages to the south-east, in the east wall is a twolight window in Perpendicular style, a similar window in the south wall incorporates some ancient tracery, evidently that of a former east window of the aisle, shown in the drawing of 1804 in the Sharpe collection. The west arch is of two orders dying away into square responds.

In the east wall of the nave over the chancel arch is a small window of two square-headed lights without tracery containing some stained glass, apparently ancient; the stonework may be a 15th-century reconstruction of a pre-Conquest window. In the northeast corner of the nave is a rood-loft stair of the 15th century having plain anse de panier doorways above and below and a small window with pointed arched head to the north-east.

The north arcade is of three bays, each arch is of two orders with hollow chamfers; the two piers are cylindrical and the responds have the form of half-piers; the base moulds are of a 15th-century form; the caps, however, though probably coeval, are a rather inaccurate copy of those in the opposite arcade. The south arcade resembles the north, but, while all the bases are of the 15th century, the caps of both responds and that of the western pier as well as, probably, some of the stones of the piers themselves are of the 13th. Evidently there formerly was on this side, if not also on the north, an arcade of the 13th century which was reconstructed with the arches at higher level in the 15th, and the old caps were reused, except one, perhaps broken in handling. The tower arch is of one order, square and resting on square responds with plain imposts; the responds are pre-Conquest, the arch, now pointed, a reconstruction, perhaps of the 15th century. High up in the west wall of the nave is a pre-Conquest doorway having straight-lined arch and jambs of square section without imposts, probably, like that at Bosham, to give access to the space above a flat ceiling. The present roof is ancient, and has four tie-beams braced to wallpieces, king-posts, a collar purlin, and trussed rafters. The nave and aisle roofs are continuous.

The north aisle has diagonal buttresses in two stages at both corners; in the east wall is a window of two lights, and in the north one of three lights east, and one of two lights west, of the porch; these are all of the 15th century and have cinquefoil heads to the lights and normal Perpendicular tracery; the outer exterior arch of the three-light window has been rebuilt in brick. In the middle bay is the north door, having a pointed arch the mouldings of which are continued on the jambs, the rear-arch is segmental pointed. Over the door on the outside face is IHS carved in black-letter on stone, apparently medieval. The door hinges are ancient. West of the south doorway is a small doorway, now blocked and visible on the inside only, having anse de panier head, formerly leading to a newel staircase, now destroyed, giving access to an upper story of the porch. The lean-to roof has tie-beams braced to wall-pieces, principals, and a purlin. This work is all of the 15th century.

The south aisle had formerly a diagonal buttress at the east corner, now rebuilt square at the junction with the organ chamber; in the south wall are two buttresses partly incorporated in the modern vestry wall, and a diagonal buttress at the south-west corner; these resemble those of the north aisle, as do the windows. The doorway probably once corresponded, but now has a plain pointed arch made up in plaster; there is a similar roof.

The north porch (15th-century) has buttresses much patched with brick east and west of the doorway, which consists of a pointed arch of two orders, moulded, the outer continued on the jambs, the inner resting on semi-octagonal responds with imposts. West of this in the outer wall is a contemporary holy-water stoup, and in the east wall is a single-light trefoil-headed window. The former upper story of the porch has disappeared, if, indeed, it ever existed, and the present roof is ceiled partnersuche online frauen kostenlos in plaster.

The tower (pre-Conquest) has a large buttress against the middle of the south wall, probably added in the 15th century; it is of four stages with sloping offsets. On the north and south faces of the tower is a onelight window with round head and double splay: these are pre-Conquest, but have been subsequently widened. In the west wall there is a similar window, placed somewhat higher; in the second stage there is, on the north side only, a coeval window of two round-headed lights separated by a thick mullion (not a baluster shaft): in the uppermost stage there is in the east wall a one-light window with square-framed trefoil head, perhaps modern, and a one-light window with round head, apparently pre-Conquest, in the north. The tower walls are finished with rough battlements.

The vestry (modern) is built against the place of the ancient south doorway, and has a two-light window to the south, and a single-light to the west, in late Perpendicular style.

The font is octagonal, perhaps 15th-century; in the chancel is some oak panelling, part 17th-century, part a renewal; and some of the benches are of about the 15th century.

There are two bells, one uninscribed, the other dated 1572.

The communion plate includes a large plain silver cup of 1707, and a paten of 1683; these were given to the church, apparently, by the rector, George Henry Woods, whose initials they bear, with the respective dates 1840 and 1839.

The registers begin at 1558.


Singleton appears to have been, like Easebourne (q.v.), a hundredal church; that is to say, an early 'missionary centre' with a number of subordinate chapels— East and West Dean, Binderton, Didling, Dumpford, and Chilgrove —of which the first four became parochial churches. In 1086 the church was said to possess the unusually large endowment of 3¼ hides, worth £8 but actually yielding £10 to 'the clerks' who held it. These clerks may have been the members of a local collegiate establishment, but they may have been the college of secular priests at Arundel, of which Earl Roger apparently gave the patronage to the Norman abbey of Séez. The church of Arundel certainly held the 'prebend' of Singleton in the time of Henry I. In 1150 William, Earl of Chichester, and Queen Aeliz his wife gave to the cathedral of Chichester 'the prebend which William Archdeacon of London held in West Dean and East Dean', and this was confirmed to the canons as 'the prebend of Singleton' by Hilary, Bishop of Chichester. Richard I extorted 100 marks from the canons for a confirmation of the grant in 1190, they having been deprived of it by Henry II. Under an agreement made during the bishopric of Simon de Welles (1204–7) the advowson of Singleton was assigned to the Earl of Sussex (or Arundel), various tithes being assigned to the dean and chapter, who were to pay 60s. yearly to the rector. From this time the advowson followed the descent of the manor until January 1768, when, on the cession of Henry Peckham rector of Singleton, the benefice, being insufficient for the support of a rector (it was valued at only £6 9s. 7d. in 1535 ), was united to the vicarage of West Dean. The Duke of Richmond, as patron of Singleton, was to have one turn in three and the dean and chapter two. This arrangement persisted until 1849, when the two benefices were again separated, the Duke of Richmond retaining the advowson of Singleton; since, the bishop and dean and chapter of Chichester have been associated with the duke as patrons.

Within the Trundle on Rook's Hill can still be traced the foundations of a little chapel of St. Roche, a rectangle 14 by 11 ft., of which considerable ruins were standing in 1723. This is first recorded in 1570 as 'the late chappell of St. Rooks'. In 1635 the churchwardens of Singleton reported that the rector had 'a little house which by report of ancient men was bilt in former times for a Mass Priest to live in and to say Mass at a Chappel standing upon Rooks Hill'; it stood just north of the churchyard and east of the road to the church. Of the history of the chapel nothing is known.

In 1532 Peter Mawtalye made bequests to the Brotherhoods of Blessed Mary and of St. Katherine of Singleton.


Ann Butler by her will dated 11 March 1874 bequeathed £100 to the churchwardens of this parish, the income to be given to the aged poor of the parish. The sum of only £17 17s. 5d. was received in respect of the bequest, and the annual income amounts to 9s.

Henry Smith (Longstock Estate). The share applicable in this parish of the charity of Henry Smith is regulated by a scheme of the Charity Commissioners dated 13 March 1906. The scheme provides that the income shall be applied in making payments under various heads for the benefit of the poor of the parish. The income amounts to £30 approximately and is administered by four trustees appointed by the parish council of Singleton.

MAINS HALL stands in a pleasant situation close to the bank of the River Wyre, and was originally a house of very considerable interest, being built on three sides mains hall singleton history a quadrangle which was open to the south.

To some extent this disposition still obtains, though the west wing has disappeared and the building has been so much altered and pulled about from time to time that it has lost nearly all its architectural interest, and having been mains hall singleton history a long time used as a farm-house has suffered much in other ways. The north side facing the river preserves something of its 17th-century appearance, having a large middle gable and a smaller one to the east; but all the windows are modern, and additions have been made from time to time.

All the external walls of the main building are covered with rough-cast and whitewashed and the roofs are covered with modern grey slates. The side, or garden front, was rebuilt the 18th century, and is a rather uninteresting two-story elevation with sash windows, central doorway and a projecting gable at the east end.

The doorway, however, is a good piece of 18th-century work with flat canopy supported by carved brackets. The wall is about 10 ft. The garden is about 90 yds. Towards the north end of these facing the garden are the initials, roughly worked in the brickwork, of Thomas and Margaret Hesketh and the date In the north-west of the garden is a brick pavilion measuring 13 ft.

Driving up the long, rather grand drive, I began to feel more than a apprehensive! These feelings were mains hall singleton history on entering the house. It was warm and cosy with a "christmassy" feel helped a roaring log fire. I began to relax a little only for this to change when we left the warmth and entered the library.

The atmosphere noticeably changed here with a very claustrophobic feel. Lo and behold, the room has a hidden Priest hole, as in lots of Tudor houses, the family were Catholics in dangerous times! Entering the Priest Hole, the claustrophobic feeling returned again. I was glad to mains hall singleton history this room! However, I soon realised that we were entering a corridor with a horrible, scary feel with spots of icy cold air! A very interesting door gave some people strange feelings.

Later, we discovered the door may have been used to lay out the dead! And, at the end of the corridor, a few of us felt icy cold spots for no reason. The bedroom at the end of the corridor had a strange spooky feeling with again, cold spots. Next, we headed upstairs. At the bottom of the stairs, one our mains hall singleton history experienced a strange light, and felt a door open behind her.

Problem was, there was no door there! Upstairs, the Tudor Hall had a spooky feel to it, where there was at one time, a Priest Hole and a window where a lady mains hall singleton history stands staring into space. Then to the top of the house for a vigil in total darkness! The atmosphere was very scary and in the top, back bedroom, Carole, myself and another of our group felt the floor moving. Carole actually moved as a reaction to this! The cameras, one of which was very high tech and a good one, would neither focus nor work properly!

The photos which were taken had orbs which were not visible to the naked eye. One of our group also saw a face at the window when there was no-one there! After that, we went outside to use dowsing rods to help us find ley lines which are there. There are 12 monks buried and they have been seen by various in the grounds!

Next was the Ouija Board for anyone who wanted to use it or watch. Facts emerged and questions were answered which only the people asking them could know the answers to, which I found quite scary fascinating!

It was at this point when I was leaning forward to observe that I felt something touch my back! I whipped my head round to look at who was nearest to me. It was Carole, but she was sitting on the arm of the large settee and I was in the middle. There was no way she could have touched me, especially since she mains hall singleton history sitting motionless, watching the There was no-one else on the other side!

The evening finished with a seance with Veronica Charles. The whole evening, despite all the scary events, left me with a nice warm feeling. I would love to repeat the experience. The owner of Mains Hall, Adele, was helpful and friendly and very informative.

Thank You Radio Lancashire for inviting me and thank mains hall singleton history to who arranged the event. The whole thing was very well organised and, although a little scary at times, one had the feeling of being "in safe hands! Lucy Dressing up in black capes and wigs Margaret Kelly I stayed at mains hall when it was a hotel and although nothing connected with the supernatural occured during our stay I have to say was a quaint place.

If there were ever any ghosts there, they would be very disappointed with the changes.

Mrs A Taylor Ive in Lancashire all my life and have always been interested in the supernatural. For many years people have known about Chingle and Samlesbury Hall being renowned and established haunted houses. these old places tend to be very dusty indeed.

I only wish I could live there. Joan My friends and I went to a ghost investigation at mains hall but unfortunately the only spirits that we encountered were the ones behind the bar. Lyndsey Nuttall Sorry about this JD dawson i took note what you said about orbs being dust particles,and mains hall singleton history to experiment with my digital cam and a very used duster.

I did not see anything that looked like orbs to give evidence of what mains hall singleton history are claiming.

I find it hard to belive that they are caused by such things other than spirits over the years i must have used a cam hundreds of times and never caught any orbs so why do they show up when i visit huanted locations? Lyndsey Nuttall We went along to a ghost investigation to the great hall at mains. The event was through jason karls ghost research foundation,we had the chance to use ghost hunting devices,which were fantastic we actually caught a lot of ghostly voices, lots of orb photos this was a fantastic night and i will be going again mains hall is very haunted and the spirits are not afraid to let mains hall singleton history be known.

J G Dawson Sorry about this - but just to set the record straight and hopefully improve the quality of ghost hunting in Lancashire. Orbs are the product of mains hall singleton history particles, pollen and other out-of-focus airborne debris caught in the direct or reflected flash of hi-tech digital cameras and nothing whatsoever to do with the paranormal!

The orb phenomenon has proliferated since the introduction of digital photography and cannot fail to be connected. Doubters might like to try this experiment. Take a well-used duster and shake it high in the air - using a digital camera immediately take a photograph of the same area and the resulting shot will be literally full of so-called mysterious orbs. Futher fun can be had by using larger grain particles - try suger, salt and powders such a talc or flour etc.

New Years Eve they went to bed but my mother was woken by a child crying in the bedroom. Next morning she what had happened to my father, who said he knew as he had been awake after all.

She demanded why he had not spoken to her, adding that she had been afraid. He said he had not dared speak because at that moment mains hall singleton history had felt a child climbing on his back!

The property was then in the ownership of Arthur Hall. My mother was a housekeeper to the Bailiff of the estate. I had a wonderful childhood there and roamed free in the woods and fields for years my dog, Bob. I am very, very amused to see that the current owners are claiming the story of the 12 lay brothers and their burial beneath the trees. I made that story up when I was 12 years old to frighten the kids at school.

As no one thought the Hall really haunted then. I was mains hall singleton history when the priest hole was disconvered during alterations. There was only one place where I was nervous and it was on the top floor of what was an annexe, a small bedroom.

Despite my mother and Arthur Hall furnishing the room beautifully, I totally refused to sleep there. I used to play with a boy called Cyril who used to come to work on the farm after school, if he is still alive he must live locally.

Perhaps I had more right to be there than the previous or even current owners? I do know one thing that if there is an option of being a ghost after death and choosing a place to haunt then I will return, as it was the only place I was ever happy.

By the way, whilst I lived there, there was a suicide and that may have left residual energy on the mains hall singleton history. Michael Woodier I lived at Mains Hall for about six months, and have had a lot of experiences.

I have seen doors open and close on their own even ones with the old type of latch this being the one into the dinning room as it was I have sat in the front sitting room to the right of the entrance hall and smelt a very strong perfume for a short mains hall singleton history but nobody living there at the time used it My parents slept in the fourposter room on the landing opposite the main bathroom and felt somebody get into bed with them, we used to put first time visitors in that room wait for their reactions the following morning.

If you go upstairs between the open landing area and the two bedrooms and bathroom at the other end of the passage there used to be mains hall singleton history set of steps crossing the passage about halfway down in the middle. One my mother to use the bathroom, she opted to use the one at the end of the passage, she put the light on at one end walked down to bathroom but on her way back for some reason turned the light of at that end and walked back in the dark.

All of a sudden the passage lit up in bright light. She unknowingly was about to walk into the steps so she ducked under them and walked past, the light then went out again. Home Explore the BBC.

Saturday, October 20, The Mains Course. Following our last visit to this stately old pile we realised just how complicated the history of the building actually was.

However, needs must and all that, so here goes as borrowed from our preliminary report for the County Archaeologist: In William Thornber wrote about the priest hole, describing it as a: Allen, Father Campion, and the persecuted priest of Titus Oates, in succession, stretched his limbs on the straw that found still littering the floor. Numerous Catholics were duly arrested and executed it was discovered that Mains hall singleton history had been lying.

Thornber also spoke of the Tudor banqueting hal l: To the rear of the main hall, as can be seen in the photograph above, stands a Tudor dovecote, reckoned by some to be the largest such building in Britain. To the south of the hall nowadays the front drive although, at one time, the hall apparently faced the river stands what is generally mains hall singleton history as the remains of the original moat shown mains hall singleton history. And so onto the geneological history… Mains hall singleton history itself, until the time of the Norman Conquestwas held by Earl Tostig, although later Little Singleton consisting of just half a ploughland was granted in serjeanty to Banastre family and, by marriage, the Singleton family William son of Alan de Singleton owning a mill and fishery near by in The manor then descended into the hands of the Balderstons.

From here on ownership of mains hall singleton history hall descended through the Hesketh line, first with George Hesketh, who died inthen with William who died in The Heskeths, as already mentioned, were staunch Roman Catholics. Because of this mains hall singleton history family estates were sequestered by parliament in and two thirds of the land removed from their possession.

Through marriage Mains Hall now descended to the Fitzherbert-Brockholes family. Obviously, as the heir to the throne is forbidden by the constitution to marry a catholic, the marriage was soon dissolved. During the s and again in the late s Mains Hall became derelict. And that just about wraps it up for now. The sounds of snoring from our reader are a good indication that such matters can wait for another time.
